    Since Adam's downfall men die.
    In the coming resurrection there will be a judgement for both the righteous and unrighteous - Acts of the Apostles 24:15.
    On what a person does ' after ' they are resurrected will result in either: a favorable judgement or an adverse judgement.
    - Hebrews 9:28 B the ones who prove or remain as righteous ones they look to Jesus for their salvation.- 2 Timothy 4:8; Titus 2:13

    7 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

    This time is the 1000 year judgment day after Satan is removed from the earth suring that time ,Unlike the Churches who teach a person is judged based on their past deeds a person sins are not carried into the judgement day .A person is judged based on what they do during this time then the Devil is released back to the earth after the 1000 judgement time.

    This raised several questions ,why was the Devil just removed and not destroyed?
    Why would God bring him back to the earth ?
    Will God burn the earth up?
    Will we all go to heaven then come back to live on the earth in view of what David said:

    Psalms 37:1-40
    For evil men will be done away with,+But those hoping in Jehovah will possess the earth.+ ו [Waw]
    But the descendants of the wicked will be done away with.+ 29 The righteous will possess the earth,+And they will live forever on it.+

    A Revelation to John 20:1-15
    And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven with the key of the abyss+ and a great chain in his hand. 2 He seized the dragon,+ the original serpent,+ who is the Devil+ and Satan,+ and bound him for 1,000 years. 3 And he hurled him into the abyss+ and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he would not mislead the nations anymore until the 1,000 years were ended. After this he must be released for a little while.+

    It wouldn't make sense to bring those saved to heaven only to bring them back to the earth to be tempted all over again by the Devil with the possibility of being destroyed

    The reason the Devil is removed from the earth is to have ones in the same state as Adam and Eve were ,none of us were in the garden of Eden and had no choice as to what happened yet we suffer for what one man did ,well now we benefit for what one man did Jesus as we attain perfection during this 1000 period .


    We will be just like Adam and Eve God gives us the same chance they had ,then he releases the Devil ,no longer can we blame Adam as we are free from his sin and stand on our own merit perfect and sinless .

    This is the reason Jehovah didn't destroy the Devil when the Millennium began

    Afterwards the Devil is destroyed along with anyone who is disobedient and Christ the King hands back the Kingdom to Jehovah God

    New American Standard Bible
    then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power.


    Pray for the Kingdom to come to begin the Millennium

    That the idea of some sort of unvavoidable celestial justice is very psychologically satisfying, especially for people who have been wronged. The universe isn't fair nor merciful and people can't make other suffer and not get any ill consequences for such actions, on the contrary. For the victims or those who strongly believe in equality and fraternity this can be very distressing.

    However, yes agree the devil will be destroyed - Revelation 21:8
    Jesus will destroy Satan - Hebrews 2:14
    Because many lived and died before Jesus, on Resurrection Day ( meaning Jesus' Millennium-Long Day of governing over Earth for a thousand years ) then the resurrected will have the opportunity to follow Jesus' teachings. So, at the end of the thousand years Satan will be released ( back to earth's vicinity) and see if he can win over both those who knew about Jesus and those who later came to know about Jesus.

    Fire in Scripture is often figurative of cleansing and Not always literal.
    What will be consumed (aka destroyed) are wicked people - Psalms 92:7; Psalms 104:35.
    Some people called to Heaven ( Luke 22:28-30; Daniel 7:18) but the majority to inherit the Earth as promised by Jesus - Matthew 5:5 from Psalms 37:9-11
